CEDARS recently earned a 2020 Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information.
Platinum Seals allow donors to learn about the organization’s impact and results. By sharing metrics that highlight CEDARS’ work toward its mission, GuideStar is helping donors move beyond simplistic measures of nonprofit evaluation such as overhead ratios.
To reach the Platinum level, CEDARS added extensive information to its GuideStar Nonprofit Profile which is available at www.guidestar.org. By taking the time to provide this information, CEDARS has demonstrated its commitment to transparency and to giving donors and funders meaningful information to evaluate nonprofit performance.
CEDARS’ passion for helping kids in crisis and building strong families has been fueled by community involvement and support for over 70 years. Since our founding in Lincoln in 1947, we have been on a mission to help children and youth achieve safety, stability and enduring family relationships.
This past year, CEDARS served 2,000 kids and their families.
